What Car? - Car Of The Year 2019 - Best Pick-Up Winner
SsangYong Musso 2.2 EX Auto (<£25k)
Entering the fast-growing and highly competitive pick-up market segment, the new Musso is an extremely competent multi-purpose vehicle with traditional SsangYong values - comprehensively equipped, a sector leading 7-year 150,000 mile warranty with a value for money package unmatched in the sector.
The new Musso is designed to feel fresh and modern. This is instantly expressed by its exterior detailing.
The distinctive front-end is led by a grille that takes its inspiration from the spread wings of a bird in flight.
The bold headlight units group together LED daytime running lights, high-intensity headlamps for better night vision, LED fog lights, positioning lamps and directional indicators.
Being a commercial vehicle with a loadspace fit for a thousand tasks doesn’t stop Musso presenting an elegant image from the rear. A collection of LED rear lights augment a purposeful design which features the SsangYong ‘shoulder wing’ image on the rear tailgate – an elegant meeting of function and form.
The interior of the New Musso has been completely redesigned to offer a level of quality and comfort you’d expect from an SUV, not a pick-up. The soft-textured nappa leather seats can be adjusted to three different firmness settings and are heated front and rear. There’s plenty of room to seat five passengers comfortably. It has excellent NVH levels too. Eight body mounts and polyester wheel-arch linings all help to reduce noise, vibration and harshness to reduce engine and road noise.
There are three advanced state-of-the-art infotainment systems.
EX models feature a DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity. Rebel models feature an DAB radio with an 8” screen, built-in rear-view camera plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to connect to your smartphone.
Upgrade to Saracen and you can enjoy all of these features and a huge 9.2” HD touchscreen with TomTom navigation for a great audio experience.
Smooth and composed on the road, rugged and surefooted off-road, strong and dependable when towing a load. Musso's 178PS turbodiesel engine provides 400Nm of pulling power, while selectable 4x4 with low range and electronic driver aids (Electronic Stability Program and Active Rollover Protection) keep you firmly in control on and off the road.
And with a 1 tonne payload and 3.5 tonne towing capacity, Musso is ready to perform, whatever your business.
A real strength of the new Musso is its real strength. An extremely strong ladder chassis enables the vehicle to provide a substantial towing platform. In fact, it is the only vehicle in its class that can tow 3.5 tonnes and carry more than a 1-tonne payload at the same time. A unique capability that means the new Musso can offer you unrivalled flexibility. The Musso’s selectable 4x4 provides optimum traction in all conditions.
Keep calm and carry. The new Musso can handle whatever you throw at it or into it.
The surprisingly generous load deck will take 1,011 litres of cargo with a payload of 1085kg and is large enough to carry a full-sized Euro pallet.
It also comes equipped with a 12V/120W outlet to plug your power tools into, and also rotating hooks to strap down loads and stop your gear sliding around.
